Who is Wandering Dawn?
Hi! I’m Asia Dawn Simonelli and I love to travel.
When I was 11 years old, I had already lived in 11 different houses. By the time I was in high school, I could call 7 different states my home. Now in my 30s, I’ve been to over 40 countries across 6 continents (and counting)! Change and being on the move are ingrained in my DNA, and travel has become one of my greatest passions. Running, hiking, yoga, and getting outdoors also make me feel alive. There is so much to see and do, I rarely want to stay still (or stay in one place).
After an unexpected event in my life, I started to look at things differently. I quit my corporate job and launched my own coaching business (girl power!). I started to travel on my own for the first time EVER. I resolved to live in the present moment and not apologize for any path I may choose to take (or not). I truly began to live life on my own terms.
Now I want to see the sun rise and chase dawn in as many countries as possible. I’m ready to be fearless and experience whatever brings me pure joy. I’m here to focus less on what life is “supposed” to look like and spend more time just living it. Oh, and now I’m doing it all from Mexico City, my new home!
I hope this blog can serve as inspiration for your next vacation or solo travels as you follow whatever path it is in life that makes your heart sing. Maybe it will even get you thinking about what brings YOU joy! One thing is for sure. There will be some major wandering and growth along the way.
Wander with me!
